Wonderland Creek Greenway Description

The Wonderland Creek Greenway stretches just over a mile along its namesake waterway on the north end of Boulder. The trail begins at Norwood Avenue near Centennial Middle School and meanders southeast through quiet, tree-lined neighborhoods until it reaches the busy commercial area along Diagonal Highway (State Route 119).

There's a short gap in the trail, then it resumes a little farther southeast at 47th Street. At 47th, you can connect to the Longmont-to-Boulder Regional Trail to head northeast, or stay on the Wonderland Creek Greenway to go southeast through the Kings Ridge community. The trail ends at the Goose Creek Greenway, a major east-west route through the city.

If you're feeling adventurous, you can reach Valmont Bike Park by taking the sidewalk east along Valmont Road or a spur off the main trail. The park features dirt jumping tracks, a cyclocross course, a slalom race course, a bike play area for kids and other amenities for cycling enthusiasts.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available near the north end of the trail at Centennial Middle School (2205 Norwood Avenue) and near the south end off Airport Road on the western border of Valmont Bike Park.
